    I have a diamond/ ivory colored satin dress. I cannot decide whether to put my FI in Ivory or white ( I was planning on him just wearing a long sleeve shirt with khaki pants) The problem is white looks very white compared to my dress but all the Ivory swatches look too dark compared to my dress. I need input please! Also, I have no idea what my groomsman are going to wear,  I was thinking I would have them wear white shirts pinstriped with turquoise (the color of my BM dresses) but I cant find shirts like those anywhere, they will also be wearing light colored khaki pants. If anyone has any ideas similar to this or just any brand new ideas please PLEASE please let me know! Thanks

     

    Here is a link to my bridesmaid dresses, they will be in the colors Jade and Mermaid (every other one)

      In my opinion, even if your FI's shirt appears to be much whiter than your dress, I think he can pull it off. Especially since he'll be wearing Khaki colored pants, which will tone down the white shirt. How about having him wear a white, short sleeved shirt with a khaki color jacket, matching the pants? It would be ideal to go with linen, if he likes linen because it's light weight. Are you getting married on the beach?

        I'm wearing an Ivory wedding gown.  My fiance is wearing all ivory.  My bridesmaid and MOH is wearing Hunter Green.  The BM is wearing white shirt with ivory pants and the GM is wearing Hunter Green with ivory.  My BM is a tailor so he is making the pants and using my colors to coordinate the shirts.

          Thanks.. Yes I am getting married on the beach at Sandos Playacar in Playa Del Carmen.. I am trying to talk my fiance into a linen suit but he isnt much of a suit kind of guy. If I can't find anything we will probably just go with white for my FI because he loves the look of a crisp clean white shirt. I wish i knew a tailor, that would be very handy in this situation..where else would you find ivory pants?! Thanks for your help!

            Search under the Grooms and Groomsmen attire threads.  There are a lot of websites and stores listed there.  I got a general idea of what we wanted there.  I love your dress.

              Thanks, I have been doing that and I have found some good ideas, I am thinking of buying white shirts and trying to find dye a similar color to my dress, but we will see. Thanks for the dress comment also, I like it alot :) The color is just making things difficult.
